John Carter Brown Library - Portugal and Brazil Collection

The Portuguese and Brazilian books held at the John Carter Brown Library comprise one of the finest North American collections relating to Brazil before the country declared its independence from Portugal in 1822. The collection includes 650 titles before 1800 and another 500 titles from 1800 to 1822—including 165 books printed in Brazil itself after the *Impressão Regia* opened a branch in Rio de Janeiro in 1808 and presses began operating in Bahia.

This collection has been compiled from a bibliography the library published in 2009—*Portuguese and Brazilian Books in the John Carter Brown Library, 1537-1839, with a Selection of Braziliana Printed in Countries Other Than Portugal and Brazil.* By Valeria Gauz. The bibliography is an important tool to navigating the books of this collection. It features more historical & catalogued information on each title.
